When you upgrade your headers, be very careful removing the bolts and or studs. Helicoils are a pain in the ass. My exhaust manifold is a nightmare.

Keep the OE color. FJ colors are just that. An FJ only wishes it was as cool as this.

I can help with any questions you may have if you need any input.

You can do 37's on 3-4 inches easily. Don't go any taller than that.

Nice Ride and Good luck
Alright I'll post up a picture when the weather clears up of the header and let you see what ya think. I can hear it rattling around through the floor boards.

Good call on the color. I am not going to repaint it for a while, but I agree on keeping it the OE color. Ideally, I would be stoked to have a 3" lift and 37's. I think I am gonna just do RUF and Chevy's. I keep going back and forth about that or a TG 5" kit and take some of the leafs out.

True. When is the next URE outing? After you drop your cases in? I haven't been in a while.

Thanks man! And don't worry, I have a feeling this thread is going to be pic heavy I always loved the older Toyotas. I just can't believe I found one in as good of shape as it is in. I always read about it but I was finally able to pull the trigger. I did't think I was going to be able to get a 1st gen until a few more years, but a couple quick moves got me something I have dreamed of for a long time. The plan is to build it as strong as possible the first time, so that way I can just be done with the build and really have fun with it!

If it can get scheduled past the 10th I can make it because that will be the last week of class.

Sounds good to me. I will ask for those dates but I will probably have to choose between 11th-12th or the Memorial Day weekend ride. I will have better luck for the 11th-12th but I would prefer to be there for Memorial Day, but I just know work is gonna be bat shit that weekend.

Its all good. You should try to make the Memorial Day trip. I had fun last year but I didn't get to spend the whole weekend there. If that weekend doesn't work out and you want to go another weekend let me know.

Yeah I'm thinking make Memorial Day the main dates to try to get and have the 11th-12th as a backup. This just gives me incentive to get my exhaust straightened out lol

So I plan on ordering one of these by the end of the week: http://www.trail-gear.com/headers

Hopefully I will have time to install it next week, then have the exhaust rerouted the following week. My only concern is getting the exhaust work done in this area. I trust my guy back home but he is 1.5 hours away from me.

Hmm...for the money, the LCE header seems to be a better choice. Plus I can choose to get new hardware, which isn't a bad idea.

That is about $40 more than the TG one.
